How Many Gifts Do They Get?

How Many Gifts Do They Get?

We may be more excited about our daughter's toys than she will be when she receives them. We find ourselves checking them out/playing with them a little bit after she goes to sleep. So, in our excitement, we went from a limit of a few gifts to...well, quite a few.

So, how do you set a limit for gift giving to your kids or do you? Some people give three gifts like the three wise men brought to Jesus if they celebrate this religious holiday. Other people give something to read, wear, want, need or some variation of those headings.

Since our daughter is only 15 months, she'll open all of her gifts on Christmas morning, but many of them will then go away as part of the bi-weekly toy rotation so that they get spaced out more and she can enjoy them one at a time. We really do believe less is more so we've also tried to only chose quality items that will suit her for at least a few years.

What's your plan?
